Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 9-15)

‘The Lighthouse' is a magnificent 4 bedroom, 4 bath 4 story 86 feet tall house with a balcony observatory with wet bar, a full kitchen, washer/dryer, central air/heat and great fire pit to sit and enjoy the nighttime sky in the Hill Country. You only need to pack your overnight bag, we have thought of everything you will need to make your stay comfortable. The house sleeps 9-15 people. The two bedrooms on the first floor contain king beds, the second floor bedroom has two twin beds, the third floor bedroom has a full bed and a twin bed, and the secret room has bean bag chairs that turn into full size beds that can be laid out on the floor (linens provided). All of the furnishings in the Lighthouse are uniquely selected to match the 5 star accommodations provided by this unique structure.

The kitchen is furnished with coffeemaker, pots, pans, stove, refrigerator, microwave, glassware, dishes, silverware, linens, serving bowls, cooking utensils, misc. spices, knife block, toaster, etc.

The living area has leather furnishings and a 55' TV on the wall where you can put your feet up and read a good book, watch DirectTV with movie channels, or head into town and rent a DVD to watch on the television. There is no telephone but there is an internet connection in the house if you really must stay in touch with those everyday hassles!

The back deck has it's own private pool and hot tub with a negative edge and a gas fire pit with 'rocking' chairs that you can sit in and enjoy a great fire. If you really want to burn wood there is also a large fire pit down below the house past the sports court. There's plenty of wood on the ranch - burn all you want! There is also a table and chairs that you can use to have a meal outside. In addition, we also have a gas grill for outdoor cooking.

There is also a sports court set up for tennis, full court basketball, and volleyball. It's BYOB (bring your own balls).

If you wish to bring your dog or your horse we have accommodations for them as well. The back deck is fenced and can be use to contain your dog, and near the Brown House is a paddock with a water trough & feed trough. There is also a run-in and a tack area to keep your tack and feed dry.

In addition, we have four other homes on the ranch available for rental (no two houses are within 1/2 mile of each other). We have a 3 bedroom/2 bath home that sleeps 8-10 ('The Grey House'), a 3 bedroom/loft with 2 baths that sleeps 10-12 ('The Green House'), a 3 bedroom with 2 baths that sleeps 10-11 ('The Brown House') and a 3 bedroom with a loft and 2 ½ bath that sleeps 6-10 (‘The Log Home’).

Lighthouse Hill Ranch is situated in the beautiful Texas Hill Country on 2,001 acres. With this much land it is your own private park to enjoy. The ranch consists of rolling hills, incredible 50 mile views, and has one of the highest point in Blanco County. Enjoy the abundance of wildlife on the ranch from cattle, bird watching, deer, turkey, coyotes, armadillos, jackrabbits, doves and variety of other animals.

Rental of any of our houses provides you access to the entire ranch (both tracts), which has numerous springs, over 4,000 feet of clear rock-bottom creek to swim and tube in (and including a unique creekside hot tub and waterfall grotto), 8 ponds to fish, a seasonal waterfall and miles of trails for riding ATVs, bike riding, hiking or riding your own horse.

We look forward to having you at Lighthouse Hill Ranch!

About Kathy Meyertons

My wife and I purchased the ranch in 2004 for our enjoyment and for our 4 kids. It is absolutely the best purchase we've ever made. We love going to the ranch and swimming/tubing in the creek, fishing in the ponds, riding mountain bikes and ATVs on the trails, hiking the woods, and just generally enjoying a campfire with lots of stars on a clear night.

Because the ranch has one of the highest point in the county, we can see for 50 miles on clear days - and there's lots of clear days in this part of the country. There are 2 horses and 3 longhorns (along with a herd of 'regular' cattle) - it's fun to feed these animals, and our dog loves to chase the big animals (that is, until they get irritated and turn and chase him).

Heaven outside Johnson City

  • 5 of 5

This property is a breeze to get to from San Antonio or Austin, Texas but once there - it's like you own 1600 acres with luxury accommodations. The house and the furnishings are beautiful, comfortable, yet luxurious. The acreage around the Lighthouse home is perfect for leisurely or quite strenuous walking in a wonderful environment. I especially enjoyed the edgeless pool with slide, and the hot tub. Most amazing though is the views. From the 1st floor to the 4th the views are breathtaking. I hope to return often.
